Does Pope Francis have Paranoia or Dementia?

Pope Francis and his inner circle appear to have symptoms of paranoia. Cardinal Gerhard Mueller in a recent interview revealed that Francis told him: "They tell me you're my enemy." Muller in the interview said the “magic circle” around Francis does “spying on alleged opponents” and tells the Pope who are his friends or enemies. It seems that Francis may be overly attached and surrounded by certain persons with unhealthy thought processes and strange conspiracy ideas.

Evaluation of the Charismatic Movement and Pentecostalism Phenomenon

Evaluation of the Charismatic Movement and Pentecostalism Phenomenon By Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

It is not directly concerned with the persons who call themselves Pentecostals or, as some prefer, Charismatic. Moreover, the purpose here is to make an evaluation. It is not to impart information about Pentecostalism, since such information is fairly presumed, with all the literature by and about the movement and, from many people, either personal experience or direct observation of the movement in action. Finally, though I seldom do this when speaking, in this case it may be useful to give a run-down of “references” about the speaker’s own qualifications in talking on the subject. My professional work is teaching Comparative Religion. A phenomenon like Pentecostalism, I know has for years
